How do Beginners conceal eyebrows?
Eyebrow concealing can come in handy when you’re wearing makeup in a suit, or if you’re a man and you’re trying to conceal your eyebrows, so you can draw artificial eyebrows in place. There are five simple and common ways to conceal your eyebrows that I will share with you.
Find Your Shade
Concealer should generally be a shade lighter than your natural skin tone, as it should blend into your skin while serving to highlight it. By finding the right shade of concealer, you can achieve a fresh-looking makeup look without having to put in too much effort.
To help you find your concealer shade, experiment with your skin until you find the one that illuminates while looking the most natural, avoiding any shade that looks obvious. It’s also important to experiment with the texture of the concealer and the level of coverage. Knowing whether you prefer sheer, medium or full coverage is essential to choosing a concealer you’ll wear every day.
Get Your Brows Shaped
Getting your brows in tip-top shape makes everything from shadow to concealer look that much better. Shaping your brows will help you remove stray hairs (to create cleaner lines and a smoother surface for concealer application), and if you regularly wax or thread, they should hold their shape well. It’s always important to pay attention to your brow bone, as it is a crucial focal point for your brows. If you have light colored hairs that don’t show, you can always have your brows tinted to enhance the color.
If you feel that your eyebrow hairs are too long, you can always trim them with a small pair of scissors.
Fill Them In
Brow pencils, pomade, gels… all are products you can use to fill in sparse areas and create the shape of your brows. Focus on the shape of your arch first, making sure it’s defined and natural. When you’re done filling in your brows, brush them with a brow gel to make sure the hairs are all pointing in the right direction. By brushing your brows upward, you can create that coveted feathery look and enhance the overall appearance of your eyes (making you look more awake). If you find your brows are sparse, there are several things you can do to help jumpstart hair growth.
Apply Your Eye Makeup
Make up your eyes however you want, whether it’s a smokey eye or a few soft shades for a natural, everyday look. One update: Instead of applying a shimmery shadow under your brow, keep the skin under your brow bone bare. Your concealer is next and will serve as your main accent.
Finish with a concealer
By applying a light layer of concealer under the brow with a brush or blending it lightly with your finger, you’ll bring instant shape and definition to your brows. You can use a thin, angled brush directly under the brow to draw a line, or a flatter brush to blend the concealer so it’s not as visible.
For eyebrow makeup, makeup artists use three techniques.
Natural : the space between the hairs is thoroughly colored with a pencil, shadows, or color concealer.
Graphic : a new shape is traced with shadows or a pencil. The resulting result makes the image more severe, but some girls can add to age.
Mixed makeup is optimal for everyday makeup: A soft shading of the base and the drawing of the tip is made.
These techniques require a pencil, shadow and concealer. The latter is especially convenient to use at home.
What is an eyebrow concealer?
Corrective gels, used to change the shape, are available in two versions – dyeing and transparent. Transparent ones retain the natural color and are used for preserving the natural shape or its slight correction. Such a product is suitable for girls with dense, but not docile eyebrows.
Dyes are used not only to fix the shape, but also to give a certain shade.
The color palette is varied, so it is not difficult to find the closest to natural tone.
When choosing concealer, it is important to choose a tone that is 1-2 shades darker and lighter than your own. For parties, you can choose a product with glitter.
The consistency should not resemble glue, quality products always have a light texture that allows you to separate hairs. Quality correctors are resistant, not afraid of moisture.
How to use the concealer?
Every girl can master the technique of applying concealer. Begin the procedure by outlining the correct contour, along which the excess hairs are removed.
Then each hair is gently stained, moving from the base of the eyebrow to the end. When the first coat dries, you can apply another one if the resulting shade is not satisfactory.
